Statehood
In terms of a political entity , a STATE is any politically organized community living under a single system of government . States may or may not be sovereign . For instance, federated states are members of a federal union , and may have only partial sovereignty, but are, nonetheless, states. Some states are subject to external sovereignty or hegemony , in which ultimate sovereignty lies in another state. States that are sovereign are known as sovereign states . The term "state" can also refer to the secular branches of government within a state, often as a manner of contrasting them with churches and civilian institutions . Speakers of American English often use the terms state and government as synonyms , with both words referring to an organized political group that exercises authority over a particular territory. Many human societies have been governed by states for millennia, but others have been stateless societies

Land-grant
A LAND GRANT is a gift of real estate – land or its use privileges – made by a government or other authority as an incentive, means of enabling works, or as a reward for services to an individual, especially in return for military service . Grants of land are also awarded to individuals and companies as incentives to develop unused land in relatively unpopulated countries; the process of awarding land grants are not limited to the countries named below. The United States historically gave out numerous land grants as Homesteads to individuals desiring to prove a farm. The American Industrial Revolution was guided by many supportive acts of legislatures (for example, the Main Line of Public Works legislation of 1826) promoting commerce or transportation infrastructure development by private companies, such as the Cumberland Road turnpike , the Lehigh Canal , the Schuylkill Canal , and the many railroads that tied the young United States together

Doctoral University
The CARNEGIE CLASSIFICATION OF INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION is a framework for classifying colleges and universities in the United States .

The Carnegie Classification was created by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education in 1970. The classification was first published in 1973 with updates in 1976, 1987, 1994, 2000, 2005, 2010, and 2015. To ensure continuity of the classification framework and to allow comparison across years, the 2015 Classification update retains the same structure of six parallel classifications, initially adopted in 2005
